Epic Fail By Cultured Mongrel
Venue: Dance Base 
Tuesday 28 May: 12.00-13.00/14.15-15.15

Is it really your fault? Is it a lesson in disguise? Is it even failure if you don't experience shame? We have all failed but how do we know when we have failed?  Who sets the measure of success and why do we accept it?  Is anyone really born to fail?  Featuring a highly skilled international cast of dancers and costume design from Fraser Lappin, we offer you a series of vignettes that encourage you to question your relationship to failure and the impact your opinions can have on those around you.  Maybe together we can fail better… whatever that means!
